“… AND THE WINNER IS”
— by JUSTIN D. HILLIARD —
It’s been a long and busy week; however, it’s all culminated with some really great news! We are now officially in contact with my No. 1 choice for the male lead in “SWALLOW” (in fact, the actor I wrote it for). It’s all still hush-hush (wish I could share!) for now, but a door has definitely opened! I’m going to keep it short this week, and instead share a 10-minute exclusive sneak peek at some random clips from our documentary “3 Thumbs Up.” I honestly haven’t even begun to dig through all of the hundreds of hours of footage, but tried to grab a few choice clips from the road. The doc will most likely cover the span of about three years, so what you’re about to watch is just a fraction of the footage and mere glimpse of the final product. Hope you enjoy!
Also, as part of our latest raffle (check out the video at www.indiegogo.com/theothersideofparadise), we are going to announce on this entry, the winner of a WALK-ON SPEAKING role in “SWALLOW.” We are going to record the video and post it here! So, here is the winner!
CONGRATS … and here is some more BIG NEWS! Everyone who donated and purchased a raffle ticket in the set timeframe is invited to be an extra in a particular scene (more details to come) … we seriously can’t do this without your support and this is our THANK YOU! See you next week!
